I’ve been using WLED for most of this year for a lot of light based projects. However, I’ve always used the 2812B strips and they’ve been a flawless plug and play. For an upcoming project that needed pixels in multiples of 3, I decided to use the 2811 strips.
However, I can not get them to work at all. I have a 12v supply connected to a step down converter that gives 5v for the wemos and the D4 pin is connected to the data pin of the strip. 12v/GND is connected to the +ve and -ve terminals of the strip.
There’s no signal. All the LEDs are pure white which I understand is the default for the 2811 strips. My wifi detects the WLED signal and I can get into it and change settings and everything but nothing I do works. The grounds for the wemos and for the led strip are connected too.
I have used a level shifter as well and that doesn’t seem to work either
If I unplug everything and just straight up connect a 2818b strip to the step down converter/D4 pin it works flawlessly. It’s just the 2811 that’s not working
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
